Overview from Plenty of Fish
“I created plentyoffish.com because I was tired of seeing faceless corporate dating sites preying on singles. Finding love is not about handing over a monthly fee to a dating site that only cares about making sure you stay another month to pay them again.”
What a Plenty of Fish Membership Includes
With one of the fastest sign ups possible (most questions can be deferred for later), Plenty of Fish offers all of its features at no cost to the user whatsoever, including instant messaging, smiles, compatibility testing and matching, general dating and geographic forums and a hot or not photo rating system. All Plenty of Fish users can also see who has looked at their profile, ban certain types of users from contacting them (such as from certain regions of the world or people only looking for marriage), and add people to their personal favorites list.
Unique Features of Plenty of Fish
One of the best features of Plenty of Fish are the forums. In fact, it doesn’t take a browsing single long to run across a profile that proudly exclaims, “Just here for the forums!” Ranging in topic from dealing with a broken heart to non-dating related debates, the Plenty of Fish forums are an excellent way of ‘meeting’ people virtually. Plus, many Plenty of Fish members take it upon themselves to organize events and meet & greets for everyone to attend, and the place to find such events are in the forums.
Other unusual features at Plenty of Fish include a list of “who loves me” (those who have added you to their favorites), a search for members by the University they previously attended, and the ability to see if someone has read your email and/or deleted it.
